Buy more formula. Depending on how old he is you might be able to START the transition now, but it's not a good idea to make the switch cold turkey. It should be gradual to reduce the chance of upsetting his stomach.

I started my son on milk right before turning 1. He is 2 1/2 and still drinks whole milk. You may buy more formula and start mixing bottles half regularly made formula and half milk. Sometimes the transition can be tough on their tummies. It didn't bother Owen at all to switch "cold turkey" but I know some tummies can be more sensitive.
